Old friends

Marty Mead, right, and Petrena Thompson pose for a portrait on their balconies Friday, March 10, 2017, at Bridgeview Estates in Twin Falls Idaho. Mead and Thompson started talking from across their balconies and became close friends. 'Loneliness is one of the saddest things about growing old,' Mead says. 'Friends make all the difference in our lives.' NOTE: After I heard the story of how they met, I knew I wanted to illustrate that in my portrait. To make this image work, I had to shoot at f/22 to keep both women in focus.
